I like swords. It's true, I do. There's at least one sword in every room of our apartment. Some couples decorate with throw pillows and art prints. My husband and I have rapiers and tapestries of Middle Earth. It's how we roll.
So imagine my joy when I first saw the cover for Blood, Smoke and Mirrors. There was much happy dancing in my kitchen. And aside from being gorgeous, it also embodies everything I love about the book. Magic, swords, and one tough witch.
Here's the blurb to introduce you to said tough witch:
Even a bad witch deserves a second chance.
Wrongly accused of using her magic to harm, the closest Catherine Baker comes to helping others is serving their coffee. Life as an outcast is nothing new, thanks to her father’s reputation, but the injustice stings. Especially since the man she loved turned her in.
Now the man has the gall to show up and suggest she become the next Titania? She’d rather wipe that charming grin off his face with a pot of hot java to the groin.
Alexander Duquesne has never faltered in his duties as a guardian—until now. The lingering guilt over Cat’s exile and the recent death of his best friend have shaken his dedication. With the murder of the old Titania, the faerie realm teeters on the brink of chaos. His new orders: keep Cat alive at all costs.
Hunted by a powerful stranger intent on drawing her into an evil web, Cat reluctantly accepts Lex’s protection and the resurrected desire that comes along with it. Lex faces the fight of his life to keep her safe…and win her back. If they both survive.
